Why The Colony Is the Cosmopolitan Hub Just Waiting to Be Discovered
Taylor Morrison’s Waterford Point community is nestled in The Tribute of The Colony, Texas. The area has been gaining attention and traction as one of the best places to call home in northern Texas. Located practically right down the street from Frisco and Plano, The Colony has become an epicenter of community and cultural diversity all while maintaining its small-town Texas charm.
For years, there has been a trend of homeowners flocking into the hot metropolitan areas. Today, new home buyers are looking for something a little different. They want to feel at home and comfortable in their communities, they want to know their neighbors and enjoy an evening walk in a quiet neighborhood.
But they also want culture, diversity and all the amenities of big city life without the negative influences that sometimes come with residing in a metropolitan area. The Tribute in The Colony Texas is the perfect blend of culture, nightlife and an intimate community that make it a premier cosmopolitan hub for homebuyers who want the best of both worlds.
Take a minute and let us introduce you to Waterford Point, and why it’s the cosmopolitan community that you’ll want to call home.
The Colony, Texas is a beautiful town with access to manmade Lewisville Lake. Between the wide open skyline and being surrounded by plenty of opportunities to explore the great outdoors, there’s plenty to love about the area. However, when it comes to choosing a place to call home, it takes more than a nice skyline and pretty sunset to build a community. Today’s homebuyers want to live in culturally diverse communities, where neighbors enrich each other’s lives by sharing their culture and heritage.
If you were to take a look at the various lists of the most cosmopolitan cities in the United States, you would see that at least one city in Texas makes practically every top 10 – with Dallas, Houston, and Austin all receiving mentions. However, where these lists go wrong is that they don’t always look into smaller communities – like The Colony, Texas.
Just a few years ago, The Colony, Texas made it onto Money Magazine’s top places to live. A scroll through the facts and figures about The Colony included information about the city’s diversity demographics. According to data available at the time, The Colony scored well above the national average for diversity, making it a place that’s becoming more attractive to home buyers.
Arts and Culture
One of the most important features for growing communities is plenty of access to the arts and cultural activities. If this is a priority for you, then choosing the community at Waterford Point as your new home won’t leave you disappointed.
For example, The Colony hosts the Art That Celebrates America Exhibit and Art Contest. The exhibit brings together local artists to display their creations that celebrate the beauty of this country as seen through their eyes. You’ll find artists celebrating every aspect of what makes this country amazing, including our history of cultural diversity.
You’ll also find plenty of great museums in the local area. Nearby Frisco, which is only about 10 miles from The Colony is home to several museums that are focused on science and technology. Anyone who can be affectionately called a science “geek” will love a trip to the National Videogame Museum in Frisco, or the Sci-Tech Discovery Center. A short trip to nearby Plano will put you in touch with a more traditional type of museum experience, where you’ll find the Art Centre of Plano and the Plano African American Museum.
The Colony and the surrounding areas offer plenty of options for recreational activities to fill up your spare time. However, if we’re being completely honest, few things beat a night out and an amazing meal. If you’ve ventured anywhere around Texas, then you know that cuisine is an art form.
From classic Texan fare to worldly sensations, this area has an incredibly diversified culinary culture.
Whether you’re looking to satisfy a craving, or hosting guests for a night out, there’s something for every taste and every occasion. If you’re in the mood for TexMex, then you’re not going to want to pass up Emelia’s or Angelina’s, where you can enjoy sitting on the patio with amazing lake views.
For a casual lunch out with friends, make sure to stop at Burning Rice, where you can create your own Korean-style bowls and enjoy them in a warm and relaxed atmosphere, or head over to BoXo Hibachi and Sushi for the best sushi and poke you’ll find anywhere in the area.
How about Cuban, Italian, fusion or just great, classic American eats?
They’re all here, and you’re going to enjoy the journey of discovering each of them.
The Tribute is located on one of the peninsulas of Lewisville Lake. The serenity of the lake and surrounding natural areas make spending time outdoors practically irresistible. You’ll find that while you’re enjoying nature, you’ll also get the chance to meet and connect with your neighbors.
While the walking path’s and lake shores aren’t necessarily bustling with the type of activity you’d find on a metro area street, you will meet plenty of other residents on your adventures, and you will find that with all the diversity and different tastes that everyone has one thing in common – a love for their beautiful community.
